Wilson Continues to Fight HST

McGuinty Liberals Plan to Rush through HST Legislation without ConsultationDST

(Queen’s Park) Dalton McGuinty’s government has introduced legislation that will make the HST an expensive reality for Ontarians, and Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson is promising to use every legislative means available to stop the $3 billion tax grab.  The local MPP is also daring McGuinty to hold public consultations in Simcoe-Grey.

“Taxes for an average middle-class family of four could increase by $2,500, and by more than $2,800 for a typical senior couple due to this new tax,” said Wilson.  “The Progressive Conservative Caucus is committed to using every tool at its disposal to defend Ontario families and stop this tax grab from coming into effect.”

With the introduction of the HST legislation Monday, the McGuinty Government has signalled it intends to push the bill through the Legislature with minimal debate and no opportunity for province-wide public consultation and review. 

“I can’t recall many other issues that have sparked so many petitions, letters and emails to my office,” said Wilson.  “Dalton McGuinty is running scared from public pressure on the HST as Ontarians realize its effects, most notably as the single largest sales tax increase in the history of the province.”

Tim Hudak and the PC Caucus are calling on Ontario taxpayers to lend their voice to the anti-HST campaign.  Constituents are encouraged to both print and sign the HST petition at www.jimwilsonmpp.com and contact Dalton McGuinty at This email address is being protected from spambots.

“I dare McGuinty to hold a public consultation in Collingwood or The Blue Mountains and listen to tourism operators who will be devastated by this tax,” said Wilson.  “If McGuinty actually believes that this tax grab is in the best interest of Ontario families he would have the courage to hold open public consultations throughout Ontario.  To do otherwise is nothing less than a slippery and gutless attempt to deny a voice to the seniors, middle-class families and small businesses who have the most to lose from this $3 billion tax grab.”
